New Product Review: Gillette Fusion! Kiss My Face! Alba Botanica! The Mystery Product! and Water Babies…

September 1st, 2007

New products/old products/all kinds of products:

* Gillette Fusion: This razor bills itself as “the comfort of 5 plus the precision of 1.” I do not know exactly what that means. Hockey God sez: “The beard trimmer doesn’t work that well, but the razor is alright.” A winning endorsement.

* No matter what other lotions I try, I always go back to my old love, Kiss My Face “obsessively natural” A&E Ultra Moisturizer. It is thick, it works well, it smells good and it makes my skin silky and delightful. Plus it doesn’t make me itch.

* I will make an exception for the Mystery Product, the no-name tubes of stuff they gave us at the condos we stayed at in Vail. (And not little measly containers, either — they gave us full-size containers.) (Well, close to full-size.) No, there is no manufacturer’s name on the label. No, the front desk didn’t know where it came from. Everything, the sunscreen, shampoo, conditioner and lotion, all contain basically the same ingredients: cucumber extract, sea kelp, green tea, lavender extract, wheat germ oil, wheat protein, vitamins A, B & E. I brought home five tubes of each product and when it is all gone it will be a sad day at Wacky House. A sad, sad, cucumber extract-free day.

* Speaking of sunscreens, all summer we’ve been using Alba Botanica Sun Kids’ Sunscreen SPF 30 on the little blonde kids’ bodies and Water Babies UVA/UVB Protection Sunblock Stick 30 SPF on their faces. We’ve also used a pump sunscreen, Kiss My Face Sunblock SPF 30 Spray. It works just great, and is not aerosol.

    […] When will Shelly send me the squares? Who could that be? Will WM survive in a world without the mystery product? Will Jessica switch to wordpress? What is wrong with DB? Will there ever be another […]
